KBShimmer: Launch Party Collection

Press Sample



Greetings, dear readers! I am positively giddy to be sharing today's blog post with you; I hope you don't mind if I keep the chit chat short and just jump in! KBShimmer is releasing a new magnetic collection next week, and the collection consists of magnetic multichrome and duochrome polishes! It is a really exciting collection in general, and this one is particularly special because it will feature KBShimmer's stunning new look. From matte black and holographic foil accented boxes to a brushed silver logo imprinted on the bottle in a sleek font, KBShimmer is taking on a new look with the indie brand's 10th year in business. It's been an amazing experience watching the brand grow throughout the years, and I know I am excited about the new look. Now let's talk a little more about the polish!

The Launch Party Collection consists of eight multichrome and duochrome polishes and a single galaxy holographic top coat for a total of nine shades. Rather than keeping myself on repeat throughout this post, let me fill you in on the formula details in one neat, little space! If you've been following me for awhile, you likely already know that I love the formula found in KBShimmer polishes, and this collection is no exception. Deliciously creamy, I find these polishes to have an impeccable consistency that is neither too thick or thin for my taste. I was able to achieve opacity with either two or three coats; this specific detail is noted under each set of swatches. Let's get a closer look at each of these beauties!

Just A Phase
Two coats

Just like the phases of the moon, this magnetic multichrome polish has many different looks. This polish shifts from shades of red, bright pink, gold, green, copper and peach.

Solar Flair
Three coats

If you are looking for a fiery polish, this magnetic multichrome is it! Like the molten flares of the sun, this polish shifts from shades of gold and yellow, to hot oranges and reds.

Let's Do Launch
Two coats

When the space shuttle launched going off to the moon, I can only imagine the families gathered around the television, in the pastel shades of the 60's, anxiously awaiting those first lunar steps. This magnetic multichrome echoes those soft peach and pinks, lime green, and grass green shades of that eras fashion.

Thrust Issues
Two coats

Burning bright in the sky, the golden flames of the rockets carrying astronauts into orbit are etched in the minds of those that viewed space launches. This magnetic multichrome shades imitates those golden hues with a range of yellows, gold and oranges that dance like flames on nails.

You Rocket My World
Two coats

Earth, with its rolling hills of green, vast blue oceans, and rich and vibrant jungles must be a wondrous site to see in space. This magnetic multichrome starts with vibrant shades of green and shifts through shades of lavender and silver.

No Comet
Three coats

Like a comet shooting through the sky, this magnetic multichrome shade mimics the colors of those nightly wonders. This magnetic duochrome shows off a vibrant blue, flipping to a majestic purple. Top with A Star Is Formed for galaxy like nails.

Spaced Out
Three coats

This magnetic multichrome is full of fantastic flipping pigment. Purple and pink hues give way to shades of green blues and in photos an almost silver colour appears. This is one shade you won't want to take off!

Orbits and Pieces
Three coats

Throughout space, orbiting around planets you will find billions of pieces of stars, planets, and even stuff from earth. Imagine finding technology from earth light year away, crazy! This magnetic duochrome polish is crazy as those pieces of space junk. A vibrant magenta pink flips to a bold blue toned purple, for a shade fit for infinity and beyond.

A Star Is Formed
One coat over Thrust Issues

One coat over Just A Phase

One coat over No Comet

One coat over You Rocket My World

What is a space collection without the stars? This holographic top coat is loaded with micro holo flakes that shimmer and sparkle in the light. While not quite a linear holo, these holo flakes produce a beautiful holo flame that paired with any of our magnetic polishes twinkle more than any galaxy in the sky.


Because this collection consists of magnetic polishes, KBShimmer is naturally offering a magnet in the shop as well. The magnet creates a "cat's eye" or linear pattern while held in close proximity to these polishes.


The Launch Party Collection will be, well, LAUNCHING  next Thursday, March 15th. The polishes will retail for $10 each and the magnet will be $3. For a limited time, you can purchase the full nine-piece polish collection, magnet, and a beautiful multichrome zippered bad for only $90!

This out of this world collection will be available for purchase at KBShimmer.com and select retailers.

Do you have a favorite shade from this collection? I keep thinking I do, but then I keep changing my mind! I adore the range in colours of these, and the magnetic aspect certainly adds a fascinating spin!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
